Florida Lighthouse Notecard Box Set

During the 19th century, because of its many shoals and unmarked headlands, countless ships and thousands of lives were lost along the Florida coast. Wrecks occurred with such regularity, that salvaging grew into a major industry and a thriving city called Key West was born.

The United States took possession of Florida in 1821 and started building lighthouses along the Florida coast in 1825, to protect the nation's busiest shipping area for commerce. Advances in technology during the 1960's caused many of the lighthouses to become obsolete. Many of the lighthouses started to deteriorate and were vandalized. Public outcry caused the government to seek ways of preserving the nation's old sentinels. Nearly all of Florida's lighthouses have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Today, nearly 30 Florida lighthouses, which represent a diverse style of architecture, guide shipping along the Florida coast.
